on a girl's best friend...

sparkly!

Is there anything quite like a newly-cleaned, sparkling wedding ring? Whenever I get mine cleaned, I feel like I'm getting a brand new ring back. I'll walk out of the mall sneaking looks at it the entire time. And then I'll get home and admire it in every lighting.

And then I'll take photos of my hand, because I'm a cheese-ball.

  2. LOL! This was totally me! I'd get my ring cleaned once a month and just die over the sparkles all afternoon... and then I had a baby. A few months ago I looked down and laughed because my precious ring was caked in day-old sweet potatoes. And then it made me happy because it meant that the two of us became three and underneath the dried babyfood will always be sparkles ;)

  7. Every time I go to the mall I get mine cleaned. The sales guys at Fox's know to not bother asking what I'm looking for haha :-) I just never wanted to apologize for a dirty ring if someone wanted to see it, ya know? and actually, I think that's kind of an impressive picture of your ring, because I found it quite difficult to get a great shot after we got engaged haha. So, well done!

    Love your blog!

  15. I think we have the same ring! Or very similar! My center stone(s) may be a bit smaller. I've since upgraded, or probably downgraded actually to a band because I kept knocking the setting out of place.
    So pretty!
